An increasing number of cholera-effected cases in several heavily populated areas over the past few weeks indicates that Yemen may be on the brink of a new cholera epidemic, with a heightened death rate due to widespread malnutrition, and the United Nations is hoping for a ceasefire in the north to allow for vaccinations, the World Health Organization said on Friday.
